This is the third and final review of the least harmful cleaning strategies discussed in the book Extreme Green Cleaning, Second Edition.Extreme Green Cleaning, Second Edition

The last two articles in this series reviewed both transitional chemical-free technologies and enabled chemical-free technologies.

The fundamental requirement for a toxic-free, chemical-free array of products must result in a strategy that will not ultimately harm us or the environment.

The consistent goal, regardless of what technologies are used, is to create a cleaning result that is inert or otherwise harmless if inhaled, ingested or absorbed by contact.

In this three-part series, we have barely begun to explore the variety of chemical-free cleaning technologies and products available — and, the list grows daily.

We must seriously consider the use of transitional, enabled and fully chemical-free technologies to meet our need for professional appearance, occupant safety and ecosystem health.

Indeed, that means we ought to use traditional and “green” products when better, safer alternatives just won’t work.

Whatever products used, we must also find a way to reduce or eliminate any harm that might come from the chemicals utilized to achieve our goals.

The evolving cleaning model is moving from the limited choice between traditional and “green” cleaning strategies toward natural and chemical-free alternatives as a first choice.
